What COM-to-IP adapter?

My Helios64 is "far away" and I am afraid to change network configuration, because if I miss something I could lose connectivity to the box. I would like to attach COM-to-IP adapter so that I always had serial console available, but... what actually do I need? "Normal" com-to-ip adapter provides COM port. Helios64 has COM-in-USB. So...? How to convert Helios'es serial console to anything accessible via LAN?

Well, if you wanted to go minimalist, you could probably solder pin headers to J13 and then hang an esp8266 off it using something like the esp-link firmware

 

Edit: sorry, was thinking of the Helios4.  The Helios64 would use P14 and it's already populated, so no soldering required.  Then you'd just need to pick up vcc/gnd from the gpio connector to power the device.

 

*note: I haven't actually tried this
